Joe, if you have disk space problems (rather than bandwidth/cost issues),
would you consider running a private FTP proxy for other sites doing
mirroring? The Citylink server has always been only a few strokes of the
cost cutters pen from oblivion - we'd happily fess up with the disk space
for a full Debian mirror if we didn't have to pay some fairly hefty
traffic bills. You could limit access by time and source/dest IP to avoid
the question: does anybody know of other locations in NZ
where the archives above are already mirrored?
the above is also at ftp://ftp.citylink.co.nz/pub/linux/
Is this supposed to be common knowledge? Si?
Yep, it was in the mirrors.txt for Debian for several years, it's more
commonly now accessed as
